Analyzing Microbial Growth with R

In experimental evolution research, few things are more important than growth. Both the rate of growth and the resulting yield can provide direct insights into a strain or species’ fitness. Whether one strain with a trait of interest can outgrow (and outcompete) another that possesses a variation of that trait often depends primarily on the fitnesses of the two...

Animated Choropleths in R

Ari Lamstein has updated his choroplethr package with a new capability for creating animated data maps. I can't embed the animated version here, but click the image below to see an animation of US counties by average household income, from the richest to the poorest by percentile. (The code behind the animation is available on github.) The chloroplethr package...

Use pipeline operators in R

April 7, 2014
By

In data-driven statistical computing and data analysis, applying a chain of commands step by step is a common situation. However, it is neither straightforward nor flexible to write a group of deeply nested functions. It is because the function that comes later must be written first. Consider the following example in which we need to take the following steps: Generate...

Earthquake Magnitude / Depth Chart

I am working on a project related to secondary effects of earthquakes. To guide me in the analysis I need a chart showing the location, magnitude and depth of recent earthquakes. There are a host of such charts available already, but since I had the required data on hand, it seemed like a good idea

Choose Your Own Data Adventure

The question is: can we automate scientific discovery, and what might an interface to such a tool look like. I’ve been experimenting with automating simple and complex data analysis and report generation tasks for biological data and mostly using R and LATEX. You can see some of my progress and challenges encountered in the presentation
